My teacher keeps singling me out

I’m the only Jewish girl in a class of Christmas-y classmates…

Hey bookworm807, that is really annoying. Playing favorites has probably been a huge part of his teaching style for a long time, so there may not be anything you can do to change it. Just try your best to be a good student. Always come to class on time, prepared and ready to learn. Hopefully he’ll start to see all your hard work. Good luck! XoXo


MOD MOD MOD I have this teacher in my school. he plays favorites all the time. It kind of annoys me. what do i doz?

Private schools are the worst! My teacher did the same kind of thing after I came back to school after having cancer. All we did was watch videos about kids with cancer. Don't ever stay in school just to be abused by teachers. Homeschooling really has alot more benefits.

@ anime lover: i feel so bad for u. if ur friends cant accept u, then they werent really ur friends at all. be proud of who you r, and surround urself with people that accept u for who u r!

I feel the same way...once people figure out that I am Muslim and I don't celebrate Christmas, they stop hanging out with me and the teachers start acting funny...

Christmas is a nationally recognized holiday. If Jewish people choose not to celebrate it than that's their choice. But that doesn't mean we need to incorporate their holidays into our lives. Christmas is a religious holiday but it's also a national holiday so we shouldn't feel pressured to recognize their holiday if we're not Jewish. Just proving a point! No offense intended to you Jewish people out there! Smile

My questions never get answered anymore, even after a month or so. Is this normal?

Hey girl,

You should give us a couple hours max to get to your question, since we do get LOTS at once and need time to sort through them. But no, after a month you should definitely post it again! Make sure you're using appropriate language and not talking about any offensive topics. And also make sure you don't post the questions over and over - once should do it! If all is good, there's no reason why we wouldn't post it! Maybe it just got lost in the system the last time you tried Smile We have glitches every so often, just like any other site!

Sounds like something my psychpath history teacher would do....

I am so glad I am not alone! I moved last year and this time of year is always super awkward! We played holiday jeopardy and my team won! Do you know why? Cause the final jeopardy question was "what is the story of hanukah?" and i was the only one who knew it! Also, yesterday a kid came up to me and asked me if I spoke fluent hebrew! Sometimes kids make slightly offensive jokes by muttering them cause they think I can't hear, its really rude...

Hey, I was born half Jewish so we celebrate both x-mas and hanukkah, Even though I only believe in Judaism. I am one of 16 Jews/ 2,000 evryone else in my school. I have always had the same issue, I've even been persuaded into giving one to many hanukkah presentations. I did what the writer of the article says to do go all out, however it lead to a lot of bullying. Just talk to your teach.

My best friend who goes to another school is having a birthday party, and I have no idea what to wear. It is at GloGolf, an indoor miniture glow-in-the-dark golf. DO you have any ideas on what I could wear.I'm not really good at putting together outfits.Multiple options if that's not too much to ask.Thank you so much! ~~~~

Hey girl,

O-M-G, that sounds like so much fun! Since it's indoor, you don't have to worry about being all bundled up. I'd try a white tee or lacey tank (since it's glow in the dark, the white will stand out) with a pair of skinny jeans and boots/flats. Keep it simple and casual! Smile

Hey, just pull your teacher aside and tell him that you don't like it....though that may just make him proclaim really loudly that he wasn't trying to make you embarrassed,(Which will make you more embarrassed and yeah ALL teacher do that). Or just wait for Christmas to pass when it will all blow over.

same here. because im jewish, people make all these racist jokes about it. there are some other jews in my class but its embarrassing when people say mean things about jews. We should be treated EQUALLY.

I'm Home-schooled, so I don't really get singled out at school! lol I do all my school work by myself and my mom only helps and checks stuff over when she needs to so yeah its pretty nice. Sometimes is feels weird when other people talk about how awful their school is and then a friend who goes to that school thinks its awesome. lol Home-schooling is pretty fun tho sometimes because I spend half the time as most schools do the only downside is that when my friends are in school I get bored.

by awesomegirl4everandalways on 12/8/2011 6:05:34 PM


I am the the only Jewish in the whole school! There are one thousand kids in my public school! My grandmother basically hates my mom and my whole family! My friends always go off on me! Don't worry! At least you have friends right?

by Charlotte12sky4 on 12/8/2011 5:01:51 PM


is it rude to block my mom on facebook? i mean we are not friends on there, but we have one mutual friend. my aunt. and my aunt "likes" everything i post! and i dont want my mother to see it. like i dont want to be rude. but sometimes i think she stalks me. Help!

Hey girlie,

It's totally your call if you want to change your privacy settings so your aunt (and anyone who isn't friends with you) can't see what you're up to. I wouldn't unfriend her just because she's related and you feel embarrassed/uncomfy/afraid your mom will see, but it's actually a GREAT idea to protect yourself from non-friends seeing your business. That's the best way to stay safe - from mom seeing stuff and from strangers on the Internet Smile
